Last night it was my pleasure to attend a meeting/presentation at the Pavilon, Wilberfoss to learn more about the proposed the Wilberfest Music Festival, which is due to be held in Wilberfoss on the 4th and 5th August
I was impressed by the presentation given by Gareth and in principle I fully support the event. An application for a premise license has been submitted to ERYC. A decision on the license application will now be given after April 18th. If a licence is not granted, however, the event will still take place but with reduced numbers.
Please Raise Concerns
Not only was it was wonderful to hear positive support for the planned event but I also welcomed the opportunity to learn of residents concerns.
I am holding a surgery in the Wilberfoss Community Centre between 09.00 and 11.30 on Saturday 24 March. I would especially like to encourage those Wilberfoss residents who have concerns with Wilberfest to atttend.
It is fundamental for a successful event that any concerns raised are given due consideration. To facilitate this I will request a meeting at County Hall to refer all concerns.
